well here is an update.. last night got playing with ideas and decided that i am going to remake the overflow chamber and add some really heavy plexi i have to the bottom. this will add weight and give me a place to put a nice size piece of LR to hold it in place :) .. the new pump is coming today so this should be built in the next 24-48 hours and i just got word that a super nice gentleman i had dealt with before is going to let me have a few pieces of live rubble!! i am going to set it up in a small tank with a heater and a power head to keep it live while i get the stuff to start my tank and if all goes as planned i should be up and running in the next 4 days !!! i am super excited.. i will need to add to everything later but a nice start to a planned long cycle (not to mention 30 days early LOL)

soooooooooo eeeexxxxcccciiiiiittttttteeeddddd!!!!!!!!!!

went to meet up with this guy for some rubble... man gives me about 5-8 pounds of rock from quarter size to baseball!! lots of life and (not sure if he knew) a CORAL!!!! its all angry and puffed up just now but its green and has purple heads when it calms down i will take pix to post as i start my real build thread which now has officially started!!!! the guy hooked me up with some salt water (almost 5 gallons) and i have all of this in a 5 gallon tank with a powerhead just keeping things going ... and the guy had a all glass top i could have.... so if i decide to change how i want the top (currently 3 pieces of glass) i got that too!!!

man i hope the buyer for my 55 does not bail on me tomorrow once its gone i get my salt, sand, and water then things really pick up !!!
